We have been there as it was recommended by Lebanese friends. The mezes were fresh and good but fish was below average. The deserts were not good at all. We paid $75 for a fix menu + drinks which ended up $100 per person. There are much better restaurants in Beirut where you can eat much better food at lower... More

Excellent seafood, and friendly service. Mezze dishes are fresh and tasty. White wine was served fresh. The only tarnish unfortunatly, is smoking from cigars and chicha. Very unfortunate for such great place.

A old restaurant with no personality, service is average and not much help from staff when ordering, food is fine nothing really stands out at the end of the meal we got a set of about 8 little cheap desserts. OVERPRICED restaurant not worth the money. I would not recommend it and never going back again.

If you like fish straight from the Med, if you like a restaurant sitting at the sea, if you like excellent service and excellent food, then this place is for you. It ticks all the boxes. The choice of seafood is amazing. It was cooked to perfection.
